<p>In this brilliant late-career collection, John Updike revisits many of the locales of his early fiction: the small-town Pennsylvania of <em>Olinger Stories</em>, the sandstone farmhouse of <em>Of the Farm</em>, the exurban New England of <em>Couples</em> and <em>Marry Me</em>, and Henry Bech’s Manhattan of artistic ambition and taunting glamour. To a dozen short stories spanning the American Century, the author has added a novella-length coda to his quartet of novels about Harry “Rabbit” Angstrom. Several strands of the Rabbit saga come together here as, during the fall and winter holidays of 1999, Harry’s survivors fitfully entertain his memory while pursuing their own happiness up to the edge of a new millennium. Love makes Updike’s fictional world go round—married love, filial love, feathery licks of erotic love, and love for the domestic particulars of Middle American life.</p>
